MSNBC is saying that they're not suspending Keith Olbermann because he made political donations. They say it's because he didn't get management's approval first, which violates their employment policies.
Looks to me like Keith was exercising his rights as a citizen.
How can MSNBC interfere with that right? What if he wanted to marry a person of another race? What if he wanted to own a gun? What if he wanted to peacefully assemble a group of people in his own home?
What I'm getting at is this: How does an employer have the right to put language into an employment contract that requires employees to get prior approval to exercise their rights as an American citizen?
Can someone explain this?
